Check This Out: Massive, Detailed Infographic on James Bond's Cars

Hey Bond fans, do we have an infographic for you! I recently found this massive, 19,000px-tall infographic titled James Bond's Cars, or the "Historical Background of the Vehicles Driven by Legendary Agent 007." And when they say a historical background on the vehicles, they mean all of his vehicles, every last one, all 23. They cover just about every special car Q built for James, as well as vehicles that were stolen by Bond or driven at any point. He's driven 8 Aston Martins and 4 Fords (wha?) plus a wide variety of others, including Bentley, Rolls-Royce and that Lotus Esprit Turbo from For Your Eyes Only. Check this out below!
The image was created by and comes from CarBuzz.com. "All facts mentioned above were gathered with extraordinary caution and daring courage." I'm a huge James Bond fan myself, and couldn't help featuring this, even though I wish the photos were actually from the movies and not non-descript stock shots. I'm in love with any/all of the Aston Martins, they're such beautiful cars, I hope they continue to carry the Bond legacy featuring them in upcoming movies. Now if only someone could put together an awesome infographic based on the stats at the bottom about the other vehicles he's driven - tanks, planes, motorcycles - hell yes!

If someone at CarBuzz were really creative and sharp, they would ThingLink this awesome James Bond's Car Infographic with rich media tags to James Bond-realted links, such as Youtube clips, trivia, Bond Twitter and Facebook feeds, websites of the great Bond actors, and specifically, to each and every auto manufacturer website. http://www.thinglink.com

There was a rumour on the BBC website some time ago that the new 007 film will feature a brand new Bently of some sort. Whether this Bently will actually be on sale or not is anybody's guess because some cars don't actually go on sale.

I fucking love the idea of James Bond rolling around in donked out Lincoln convertible, with stupid glassy chrome wheels. "AYO GURL, IMMA SECRET AGENT BITCH"

Awesome! They kinda messed up towards the beginning though. Live and let die came out in 73, not 63. so the timeline's a little off.
Garrett Jamieson DeLozier on Aug 27, 2011
uuhhh. whoever put this list together made a couple egregious mistakes. the Pic ture associated with teh "Bently Continental Mark II" is actuall an early 1950s LINCOLN Continental MkII, the picture associated with the Ford LTD is actually a Ford Fairmont. And Bond woudl NEVER have driven a lincoln with those horrible gaudy Donk wheels. And WTF is the deal with showing a kids toy DB5 associated with Goldeneye? I mean, yeah, that movies sucked, but I mena c'mon.

Agree with Garrett...the '63 car should be the car from Dr. No, with Connery, not Moore.

it's bullshit the mach 1 mustang from diamonds are forever is not represented. not only is it one of the sickest cars he drove, its one of the the quickest and raddest car chase scene set on the vegas strip. i used to have a 73 yellow one, so it hurts me not to see bond in the 71 he had for like 2 scenes.

Oh and they totally forgot about Bond's Blue BMW Z3 Roadster from Goldeneye. Yeah, he never did have an action scene with it, but cmon
Garrett Jamieson DeLozier on Aug 28, 2011
It also says he stole a Ferarri in Goldeneye...is there a deleted scene I missed? I don't recall seeing the Ferarri again after seeing it parked at the casino near the beginning of the movie.

As well as the 5 series he drove in Tomorrow Never Dies and TWINE.

They pretty much ignored the BMWs that Brosnan drove! They mention the Z3 from GoldenEye but don't list it, they totally overlook the 7 series from Tomorrow Never dies, but they mention the Aston Martin that was 'briefly seen in a parking lot'. No love for the beamers.
Happy on Aug 29, 2011
